Woke up this morning thinking about my daughter. She of the Barbarian spirit. She who was lost and is found. She who moved to CA. and is pursuing dreams that we tried to civilize out of her. She of a wandering spirit. She of incredible drive and dreams. She of passionate (read stormy) ways.
My prayer for her this morning is to not settle. To move always and only towards Him. To focus on Him. To operate in the knowing He is ahead and behind and wants her to move forward always in loving Him and seeking His ways, no matter how lonely and afraid, no matter how misunderstood she feels, no matter how scared and small, no matter how much we worry. Her freedom is in Christ not and never in fitting in.

She is an incredible mix of you and your hubby! Lovely people you are!
I'll keep her in prayer to "not settle" with you. To focus on Him.

I echo your prayers for my daughters. We always want them to move toward God. I loved this post and pray you continue to receive His blessings in order to give sound guidance to your daughter.
